Medicaid to Expand in Virginia in January 2019

Look for further announcements here.
Hepatitis C Medication for Persons with HIV
Medication Assistance and Best Plans for Persons with HIV/AIDS
Virginia ADAP (AIDS Drug Assistance Program), can pay for HIV medications for those not enrolled in health insurance and offer information on obtaining ACA health insurance.
Contact: Medication Assistance Hotline: 1-855-362-0658 or www.vdh.virginia.gov/ADAP
This VDH (Virginia Dept. of Health) Hotline also operates the Health Insurance Marketplace Assistance Program (HIMAP). HIMAP will pay both medication costs and health insurance premiums for eligible individuals enrolled in VDH approved Affordable Care Act plans. Those who enroll or re-enroll in health insurance without going through ADAP may not be eligible for ADAP support.
If you receive a letter from the Virginia Dept. of Health about health insurance, take action.
